Well, I was. Cisco 2621, one FE for internal LAN, one FE as 802.1Q
trunk for visitor VLAN and DMZ VLAN. And I wanted to place the DSL
Modem into another VLAN for the PPPoE.

But as I need two PPPoE sessions in parallel, and the LAC rejecting
more than one connection from same MAC, I needed to play tricks
on the switch to make the DSL Modem available for both FEs (setting
"native" VLAN to the same like the internal LAN).

So what I wanted (and didn't get) was: do PPPoEoVLAN _and_ support
multiple parallel sessions each using a different MAC address.
That would have been ideal. :-)
